Cuttinup Show Blankets are the only show blanket on the market with a contour shape built into the pattern. Cuttinup has created a more unique hand-woven product, that fits better. This wasn’t an easy feat. These blankets have to be made on handlooms by expert weavers, to build the contour shape. This creates a slightly looser weave which also gives you a softer feel for the blanket itself. Visit their website for more information about these show blankets.
